    I think maybe doing Dr Kruse's Leptin Reset protocol might be helpful as well.

    The basics:
    - Eat at least 50 grams of protein breakfast within 30 minutes of waking
    - Allow 4-5 hours between meals
    - Eat 3 meals a day, paleo or primal diet
    - Keep carbs at 50 or below (25 if obese)
    - No snacking - black coffee or tea OK but no cream, no calories
    - Allow at least 3-4 hours between dinner and bedtime
    - No aerobic exercise or weight lifting until LS (leptin sensitivity) is re-established, walking is OK

    Still have questions? Go to Dr Kruse's Leptin Reset FAQs. http://jackkruse.com/the-leptin-rx-faqs/

In a person with metabolic syndrome, not taking medications for diabetes, a life-threatening reaction to "low blood sugar" is impossible.

    I'd like to understand this better, is there any more info explaining this? Also, I can add that when my brother quit drinking wine every night his symptoms did improve tremendously so I imagine the sodas will have to go.

    Great article js290, thanks. Yes, my bro did drink alot and he does have hypoglycemic episodes still after quitting. Unfortunately, either they trigger panic attacks or the panic attacks trigger the hypoglycemia. What we can't figure out is why sometimes he can pull out of a hypo episode fairly quickly and other times cannot. This rate of control at normalizing the blood sugars is directly related to the passage of the panic attacks so I am very interested in an answer to this question about length of time.

    I have had hypoglycemia since I was years old. I had to stop playing sports due to the low blood sugar problems in the middle of games. I have gained a considerable amount of weight since then and it has gotten worse, but, I have always had it. Since I started changing to primal lifestyle it started wonderful. No blood sugar problems in the first month, but, within the last days my blood sugar levels have gotten lower. I am not sure what I am doing wrong or differently. I do understand your husbands issues and I do not think they are going anywhere anytime. The problem I can tell so far is not very many people understand this condition enough to treat it.
